Step 4

Take care of your fibroids

Uterine fibroid embolization is a simple, outpatient procedure that takes about 90-minutes in the doctor’s office.

A tiny tube called a catheter is advanced from either the artery in your wrist or groin to the arteries feeding the fibroids. 

The arteries supplying the fibroids are blocked by tiny beads, the catheter is then removed from the body, and a band-aid is applied.

1-2 hours after the procedure, you go home. Over the next 2-4 weeks, the fibroids will significantly shrink in size. Maximum symptom relief is achieved at 3 months.

What patients are saying about our doctors

Patient Review
For Dr. Anderson | Miami Lakes, FL

I had a procedure done by Dr. Anderson last week. I really can’t describe in adequate words what a great result I had, plus the fact that the staff, all of them, are great and really put me at ease not knowing what to expect. The followup calls I received were really appreciated. If only all my doctors had the same demeanor and skill it would be wonderful.

Very thoughtful and skilled doctor. He really took the time to understand my problem. My legs feel much better after treatment. Definitely recommend him.
Patient Review
For Dr. DePopas | Albuquerque, NM

Everyone was super friendly. I loved DePopas MD. He was very caring and when I asked him to examine my side, (not scheduled) he jumped right in. It was a big relief to find out all was well. I liked that he lowered the lights during the procedure and it helped me relax. He was fast which I appreciated too.
